Avoid Summer Colds
Summer colds are the worst! There’s actual medical science behind this saying. Over 200 viruses can cause common colds. Most of these, like the rhinovirus – tend to peak in the fall. Most summer colds, however, are what’s known as enteroviruses, which bring with them more severe symptoms, and even on occasion, unusual symptoms such as rashes. There is something you can do in an effort to avoid the dreaded summer cold…improve your indoor air quality!
Missing out on the summer festivities that are taking place make summer colds truly the worst. Of course, this summer, you can do your part to wash your hands frequently, get good sleep, minimize stress, and exercise regularly to fend off the common cold in addition to taking the right steps to clean up your home’s air.
3 Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality This Summer:
- Preventive Maintenance – Preventive maintenance of your HVAC system can significantly increase your indoor air quality (and reduce your chances of suffering with a summer cold). This routine, regularly-performed maintenance includes some do-it-yourself actions as well as more complex maintenance tasks your experienced HVAC service provider can assist with. For the best indoor air quality, make sure you keep up with the following maintenance schedule:
- DIY preventive maintenance – clean or replace your air filters and ensure your HVAC system is free from debris.
- Count on your HVAC service provider for checks of your operating system, electrical checks for connection and voltage, motor lubrication, checks for proper air flow and cleanliness among many other checks and maintenance activities that directly impact your indoor air quality.
- Repairs – If you have an air purifier in need of repairs or you fear you have poor indoor air quality in your home, don’t wait until a summer cold outbreak hits your household. An HVAC technician can test your indoor air quality and provide an accurate and cost-effective plan to get your air quality at its best.
- New Unit Installation – If you don’t currently have an air purifier installed or if the state of your current air conditioner is needed to improve your home’s indoor air quality, now is the time to get started – before the summer festivities get underway.
